Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
It’s taking ABC a long time to upload video of Reeve Carney lip-syncing performing the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark anthem “The Boy Falls From the Sky” from the closing minutes of Good Morning America. But the website has posted the interview with director Julie Taymor and U2’s Bono and the Edge that features a first look at the costume designs for Green Goblin and a new villain, Swiss Miss — she’s made of Swiss Army knives, Taymor says — and the “pop-up” sets for a New York cityscape and the Brooklyn Bridge. They’re really, um, something.
With its estimated budget of $52 million, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is expected to be the most expensive musical in Broadway history. Previews are set to begin on Nov. 14 at the Foxwoods Theatre in Manhattan, following by an opening on Dec. 21.
You can check out the screencaps after the break. I’ll post video of Carney’s performance when a decent version becomes available.
